In the 70’s the sitcom All in the Family broke new ground. The Bunker family talked very openly about issues that had not been previously talked about on TV. For example there is an episode where Archie and Edith are having a discussion about God and Mike, their openly atheistic son-in-law, asked the question, “What God.” Archie is just about to respond when his own daughter, Gloria, says, “Yeah, what God.” Archie can’t believe his ears. He knew his son-in-law was an atheist, but he could not believe his daughter said such a thing. He looks at her and says, “Yous wern’t brought up that way little girl!” To which she responds, “I know Daddy, but we just don’t see any evidence of God.”
